East Side home damaged by fire

Fire caused an estimated $60,000 in damage to an East Side home Monday evening, Buffalo fire officials said.

Firefighters were called to 50 Peck Street just after 6 p.m. for a report of fire in the 1½ story house, officials said.

American Red Cross volunteers were called to assist three adults displaced by the fire, which also caused $35,000 in damage to the home’s contents.

Fire officials said the cause of the blaze remained under investigation, but it appeared to have been sparked by a faulty heater.
